Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Hay On Wye - What advice would the Hay On Wye house surveyor give in their report?

Properties in Hay On Wye that are otherwise ideal could unfortunately be experiencing difficulties with the roof, for example, missing tiles. From ridge flashing to clay tiles, every element of the roof should be investigated, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Fixing a leaking roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A Hay On Wye roofing specialist with positive reviews should be able to assist with a quote.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We found that the cellar floor was uneven when we last viewed the apartment. Is this a major concern, and what subsidence-related defects will my house survey reveal?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. Heave is less common, and is caused by the death or removal of a large shrub or tree.

Cracks to a stairwell are an obvious suggestion of subsidence, although they could be easily repaired and of little concern. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Peat is normally stable when sat below the water table, but if the water level falls and the soil dries out, this organic matter will begin to rot and become unstable. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil. Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

To estimate the value of the property the surveyor will relate to area knowledge and other things about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Your Hay On Wye surveyor will also consider style of architecture and use key assumptions such as no damaging building techniques have been employed. Surveyors disregard certain things like furnishings.

Additional local Hay On Wye area assumptions, for example the access roads not being in private control, are made as well as any significant local environmental problems like local industry, also being considered.
